Why not just use one of the hundreds of IRC networks already out there? Speaking from experience, setting up and maintaining an IRC server of one's own is a huge undertaking that would draw the interest of maybe 50 people.

I agree that the ability to chat with peers is a great thing, but no one's stopping you from registering a channel on an IRC network( is nice) and letting people know where its at.. :)

who would be interested in a #mefi, though? besides us. i'm an efnet slug, but i know no one really wants to use efnet ever.

I'd be interested. It would suck away far too much of my remaining free time, but I'd be interested.

I would also be interested.

Since I have precious little time that Metafilter doesn't not suck out of me, sure why not make it a sweep.

I don't need a life...

i'm looking into a server right now, but if that doesn't work out, we'll probably have to use a regular irc server. i'll let you know.
